Later the must undergoes cold static decantation and, after separation, a part of the most is left to ferment for two weeks in barriques, the other in stainless steel tanks, with the aid of selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 17°C.Then all of the wine ages on fine lees in barriques in a room with controlled temperature for about 15 months during which periodical stirring operations take place and later on it ages other 12 months in tanks made of concrete. Subsequently, after being filtered, the wine is bottled and one month later is introduced onto the market.
